Last day during the shoot of our new film, I was asking Jomon if we will be able to shoot my next directorial in FILM. His reply was saddening. He said film laboratories are expected to close down completely by 2015.
Like everyone else, I also grew up watching movies shot in film. It’s actually the magical depth of film that pulled me into this world of movies. So far, all the films I have directed have been shot in film format. It rips my heart to know that I won’t have that opportunity anymore. So many things from my childhood have been washed away by digital technology. Audio Cassettes, VHS tapes, Music World and now this. So many things that I have always loved is slowly becoming my past. I am praying to god to sustain the life of film in india for one more year, so that I can shoot one more movie of mine in film and then say a proper goodbye. Atleast that!!
